Yeah. Always a good thing to be home, especially from the war.

I now there were a lots of tears when he walked through that door. It is such a strange, sad and uncertain time when dad is away in some foreign land. The uncertainty of the experience is impossible to describe and this family's holidays will be so joyous this year.

Hello--again.

I was just standing on the beach watching a sail boat and a freighter when the sun starting to get lower in the sky so what I saw is what you get.

Regarding my Mother--she is fine. At 93 she is just starting to slow down and wishes her home would sell so she could move over near me. Little does she know i want to keep taking that ferry boat ride to her house. LOL MB

Jacob said...

@ Small City Scenes - I like what you saw and I got!

Your mother sounds like a wonder. I can thoroughly understand about the ferry ride, too...you've taken some magnificent shots on that boat trip!

But I'm sure that you'll be happy to have her closer to you.

Have a great day!

What a welcome!
Hmmm, makes you think, huh?

Rob and Mandy said...

Lucky daddy, lucky family! They all should come home.

jusdealem said...

Awesome photo, Jacob. Yes, it will be a wonderful day when all of the daddies can come home.

We've got a political feminist party these days. I'm sure they'd have a word or two about this gender-biased celebration. The rest of us can simply rejoice.

JM said...

Touching and sweet!

Leif Hagen said...

We have a close family friend who just arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan for 6 months tour of duty! I guess his wife and their 3 young sons will also tie up such a sign on their front porch!

Tricia said...

Hallelujah!

Bad enough that daddy had to go at all. Most men aren't the same anymore after they had been to war.
